Dietary tips that may help reduce rheumatic conditions:
FOODS TO REDUCE RHEUMATISM
Fish oil, olive oil and walnut oil should be a part of the diet. The fat in these sorts of food, omega-3-poly-unsaturated fat or omega-9-poly-unsaturated fat, helps reduce inflammation. Nevertheless, if adding these type of oils to the diet, reduce the intake of other types of fat to not get an excessive amount of fat.
Eat a lot of vegetables since they create the body chemistry that reduces inflammation.
FOODS TO STAY AWAY FROM
Cut down on soya and corn oil. These types of fat increase inflammation. Most food bought ready to eat from the plant or restaurant contain this type of fat so read the label carefully or eat out less and prepare food at home.
Bread, cereals and manufactured foods made from corn or cereals may also increase the swelling reaction, especially if they contain wheat. Wheat causes a special type of inflammation in the intestines called celiac disease in some individuals, but may also activate inflammation of a non-celiac type. But, full-corn cereals and full-corn bread are important types of food so keep these foods in the diet. Reduce bread or corn products at every meal and eat more potatoes, beans and peas.
